All Saints CE First School has made significant adjustments to our organisational and logistical aspects of school life due to Covid-19. Although many children have transitioned extremely well back to school, some children are showing the need for interventions following their time away from school. The funds provided by the Government are allowing each school the flexibility to utilise the funds how they best see fit and select the methods that will provide the greatest impact and support for all the children. The methods selected at All Saints will benefit EVERY child in our school, but in particular the most vulnerable. We are able to provide further reading scheme books, intervention materials, additional hours for staff to complete weekly interventions across the school. In order to achieve all our intentions the catch up premium funding is topped up with some pupil premium funding. The EEF have extensive evidence to show that one to one and small group interventions are likely to have the highest impact. The EEF have also stated that technology will support an effective return to schools and will continue to break down barriers to learning. Governors will be updated at their meetings on the spending and impact of this budget.
